We support students with a wide range of disabilities, including but not limited to: 

  • Specific learning differences (such as dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD) 
  • Mental health difficulties (such as depression, bi-polar disorder) 
  • Long-term medical conditions (such as HIV, cancer, multiple sclerosis, diabetes) 
  • Sensory impairments (such as blindness, hearing loss or deafness) 
  • Mobility or physical impairments (such as paralysis, arthritis). 

We offer a number of services to students once registered. We can also provide advice on the application process and implementing any reasonable adjustments required at applicant stage for any interviews or workshops.

Services to students include:

  • Advice and information on support and Reasonable Adjustments
  • Information on additional funding which disabled students may be eligible to apply for such as the Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) (UK students only). More information and to check eligibility can be found on the Government's Disabled Students Allowance webpage.
  • Help if you're a student with a learning difficulty, health problem or disability - more information on the Government's Disabled Students Allowance webpage
  • Access to external professional support (i.e. counselling)

Students are encouraged to apply for the DSA as soon as they have received an acceptance of a place at NFTS, as it can take over 10 weeks from applying to receiving the support so early application ensure that support can be in place at the start of term
